Goal: 330.0 miles
500.7 miles completed
The NMU Conservation Crew is participating in #HikeOctober to raise awareness regarding the benefits outdoor recreation has on both our physical and mental health. Human health and environmental health are undeniably interconnected, this is just one of the many reasons the NMU Conservation Crew will continually advocate for environmental protection!
This year looks a little different than last year, but our goal is to beat our totals from last year, $525 raised, and 328 miles hiked! Any help you can provide us is greatly appreciated!
